The purpose of the investigation was to help establish the chemical, physical and micro-biological fate of mirex and carbofuran in the estuarine environment and determine the effect(s) on important estuarine microorganisms and their activities. Chemical studies on the adsorption, fate and hydrolysis were conducted. The micro-biological studies involved the use of both pure cultures and mixed cultures in a microcosm system and included twelve distinct physiological groups of microorganisms. It was concluded that neither mirex nor carbofuran would have a deleterious effect on estuarine bacteria under normal conditions, and there was no evidence of bioaccumulation. Degradation products of both compounds were shown to be toxic to some microorganisms.
